Interesting piece in the Record on Kitchener's decision to set aside funds for the maintenance of its public art and industrial artifacts (a collection of wonderful machinery scattered around town as an homage to the local industrial heritage).

Really? That's awesome, didn't know. It really should be annual.

It spawned one of my all time favourite photographs of Calgary:

Here's a new public art piece that was just installed in Hamilton...

Hamilton | The Eagles Among Us

The artwork, installed mid-May, consists of four, nine-foot-high granite eagle figures inscribed with symbols and text arranged on a circular plaza. The artist uses interpretations of the cultural traditions of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek communities to address the theme of healing and reconciliation. The work was commissioned as part of the City of Hamilton’s War of 1812 Bicentennial commemoration. read more...

I love this photo. The lighting fixture on Solaire in the background is a nice touch

That Campbell's Tomato Soup installation could have gone from ho-hum to wryly subversive if it had been a tin of Habitant Pea Soup.

Those are some pretty cool public art installations, Quebec City! Le Belle Province really seems to punch above its weight when it comes to public art.
